Insurance and Financial Planning Resolution for 2017!
The start of a new year is always a good time to take some time to look back at the events of the past year and all that we’ve achieved. It’s also a great time to set new goals for ourselves. While you’re busy committing to a workout plan or removing sugar from your diet, find a little time for your financial needs.
As you move into January take some time to review your various insurance policies and take a few steps to get your financial house in order.
Review or add Life Insurance
You may not have a spouse or children to worry about right now, but you probably will one day, and it’s a lot easier to make sure they’re protected at this stage than it would be if you were just trying to purchase a policy at age 50 or older. As you age, life insurance can become more expensive but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider life insurance. There are policies you can add that can be critical to the well-being or your family.
Revisit Your Beneficiaries
A lot can happen in a year. Maybe your family is growing with the addition of a new child or your about to welcome your first grandchild. Choosing the right beneficiary for financial accounts and life insurance policies isn’t a one-time-and-your-done-deal. You need to review your beneficiaries on a regular basis to make any necessary changes so that your estate plan reflects your wishes as accurately as possible.
